“Perfect for our 'Book Club'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Hi Blue Bay Cove,Our Book Club had the best time in Blue Bay Cove. We were a group of 11, but there was enough accommodation for all of us spread over two penthouse suites. They all had stunning ocean views. We liked the idea of shopping and preparing our own meals and the breakfast baskets but when we really wanted a feast together, Steve always gave us the best dishes and bar-be-ques at sunset. For a group of girls, we felt no hassle on the beach, and in the village…it was definitely worthwhile. The service was amazing, and the facilities are of very good. Its definitely a Value For Money resort. See you next year!!

This was a great place to stay, the accommodation was excellent, spacious, every room with its own balcony, beautifully appointed and decorated with wonderful views of the Indian Ocean. The staff were very friendly and helpful and each morning a breakfast basket was deliverd to us. The Chef was brilliant, just tell him what you want and he does it all for you, including the washing up. It is just a short walk to the Village, or if you are feeling lazy there are plenty of Tut-tuts to take you, there is a Supermarket and several Cafes and Bars. It is ideal for couples or families and is a wonderfully relaxing holiday!!!! Will definitely go again soon.

Room Tip: Penthouse appartments have fantastic views

Really enjoyed Watamu!!! Was visiting with some family members and close friends and we decided to try out Blue Bay Cove.The place did not disappoint at all........the rooms are very spacious and all 10 of us fitted in just 2 of the holiday homes!!!The chef was amazing!! 3 of my friends were visiting from the US and on our way to Watamu they had made me promise that they would sample as much sea food as possible.I was a bit apprehensive as I wasn't sure I would meet their expectation.To my surprise the chef was able to avail and deliciously prepare prawns,calamari,red snapper and even white snapper!!!! I will definately be back at Blue Bay Cove in 2012!

Room Tip: The 3rd house from the entrance must be the most spacious.....ask for that one!!!
